Well, wait a second with that advise1

The problem here is that userspace (indirectly) controls when this
allocation is made. So what you could do is to construct some code to
force the kernel into doing a *lot* of GFP_ATOMIC allocations.

And when the kernel runs out of GFP_ATOMIC space, then well bad things
start to happen :)
